Hopefully you have been following my blog for a while but at least for the past five days enough to know I am participating in a blog challenge. You can go back to each day's posts and find the "April Fool Challenge" post to see what I did the first four days.
If you are a blogger you can also participate by clicking here: http://www.parajunkee.com/.
So I have had a task for each day the point being about what a fool for books I am.
Day 6 Challenge: What to you consider to be the most "heinous" crimes commited to books or book readers?
Writing in a book.
Stereotype of book readers being geeks.
Making movies out of books. I know a lot of awesome movies would not have been made but..the book is always better.
Touching a book with dirty hands.
Having your book stolen.
Leaving your book someplace! Like on the train, etc.
Not reading your book.
Of course book burning.
Not using a bookmark and folding the pages in. I know we all have a dog-eared copy of a book or two but we should respect the book. I stopped doing that a long time ago.
Banning a book.
Being picked on because you like to read.
The outrageous prices of certain books.
A publisher looking over a great book to publish in favor of more popular authors (and then that book gets discovered and popular!)
That is all I have. I feel like I am missing something. Or a few things. But this is all I have and can think of. Is "heinous" really bad? I know the definition of it but what does each individual person consider heinous?
Come back tomorrow for Challenge 7. It will be fun!
